Detailed collection information is not included in this accession and, due to technical issues, some website features do not function as expected.
"People and the Post: A Digital Memory Book," crawled February 4, 2016, invites current and retired postal employees to share work-related stories with the general public to showcase the depth and breadth of the history of the postal system and its contributions to American history. Only a limited number of user-generated stories is included in this accession.
